Elks add two Americans

Running back Bruce Anderson and linebacker Bryan Blunt have been inked by the Edmonton Elks.

The Americans were added to the team’s suspended list Tuesday, as the pair will complete their required COVID-19 quarantine period.

Anderson spent four seasons at North Dakota State (2015-18) before signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2019. The two-time FCS All-American  also spent time with the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.

Blunt joins the Elks after originally signing with the Montreal Alouettes in 2019. The McNeese State product has yet to appear in a CFL game, and was released from the Als earlier this year. As a senior in 2018, Blunt was the Southland Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

The Elks are enjoying a Week 8 bye, and return to action on Tuesday, September 28 when the Green and Gold travel to Ottawa to take on the Redblacks.
